The Edinburgh Fringe Festival: Flyering

Standing on a busy street in front of my venue and handing out flyers to people who already have five to six flyers in their hand is one of the most challenging things you can do.
It was easier to both write this play and perform this play.
Having patience to flyer requires a monumental effort.

The audiences have been great—in terms of reaction to the piece.
And good—in terms of butts in seats.
Apparently the average number of audience members in a fringe show is five.
By that account, I’m doing well.

Still no reviews yet, but I’m wondering if that would make a difference at this point. I’ve seen five shows and have not checked if any of them were reviewed: it was just me in the right place at the right time.

It’s important to keep your head up, do your show, and enjoy the scenery. The last being the easiest of them all.
